Common sense dictates that before you purchase any used vehicle that a pre-purchase inspection should take place. This is something that can be taken care of as easily as bringing the car to your local mechanic, or hiring an expert to go and check it out for you. Larry Kosilla of AMMONYC.com recently traveled to Pittsburgh, PA to inspect a beautiful Ford GT for a client and explains the ins-and-outs of what to look for.

Amelia Island

The Amelia Island Concours is quickly becoming the Pebble Beach of the East Coast. Once a year some of the most stunning vehicles in the world gather for one simple task – to celebrate mechanized transportation. The goal this year was to celebrate 50 years of the Ford GT40, 50 years of Lamborghini, 50 years of the Porsche 911, 50 years of the Corvette Stingray, and Ducati motorcycle as a whole. The video is almost 16-minutes in length, but if you have the time, I fully encourage you to watch it in its entirety.

Posted in Domestic Rides, Ford, Ford GT, General, Rides, Videos by MrAngry | March 28th, 2013 | 2 Responses |

Hennessey Performance

In 2005 Ford released the Ford GT, a halo car that was the modern interpretation of the iconic GT40 race cars of the 1960′s. It was powered by a 5.4-liter V8 with twin screw-type supercharger and produced 550 hp and 557 lb.ft. of torque. It’s top speed was over 200 mph and it would hit 60 mph in 6-seconds. In short the car was outstanding. John Hennessey of Hennessey Performance, recently took his personal Ford GT, strapped on twin-turbos, and then proceeded to set a new record at The Texas Mile by running 267.6 mph. Ladies and gentlemen, if that’s not fast then I don’t know what is. Check out the amazing run after the jump.

It’s obvious to me now that I am simply not creative enough to be, well… creative. I mean check out what these guys did with a small projector camera, a computer and some pretty trick editing.

Ugh… makes me sick knowing I’ll never come up with something this cool.

Is Ford Planning a New Super Car?

Posted in Featured, Ford, Ford GT, News, NYIAS by MrAngry | January 14th, 2011 | Leave a Reply |

Ford GT

Back in 2005 Ford released what was arguably one of the best looking super cars of all time. It was the Ford GT and it paid homage to the exotic Ford GT40 race cars that decimated Ferrari in the 1960′s. Powered by what was basically a supercharged Ford F-150 pickup engine, the Ford GT pumped out 550 hp and had a top speed of 205 mph. Sadly Ford only produced the iconic GT for two years (2005-2006) and because of this demand for pristine used ones is still quite high. Automobile Magazine’s Eric Tingwall however is now reporting that there may now be a successor on the way, according to a question he asked during a Q&A session with Derrick Kuzak, Ford’s head of global product development. The question was simple: “Is Ford interested in a successor to the GT?” – with that and careful wording Mr. Kuzak stated, “Well I think there are certain things that we don’t want to talk about in terms of four-year product plans, if that’s okay,” – yep, that’s just fine by us.

A Ford GT and a Frankenferrari In The Malibu Hills

A Ford GT and a Frankenferrari In The Malibu Hills

Matt Farrah, host of “The Smoking Tire”, has a good life. Not only is he hooked up enough to drive all the cool cars as they come out, his readers actually offer to loan him cars to drive. Like this Ford GT, for example, which Matt is driving courtesy of a Smoking Tire regular. Or the Frankenferrari, which started life as a 1968 365 GTB but was rebodied to look like a 1962 250 GTO. Or hell, the BRG Lotus Elise he’s tooling around at the opening of the video.

Sure, we get cars from manufacturers, too (though not nearly enough and not what we ask for), but I don’t know any readers who’d let us tool around in their one-of-a-kind or high dollar classic. Prove me wrong; hit me back if you have something fast from Germany, Italy or Japan and want to see me write it up on RideLust.

Car Commercials that actually inspire.

Automobile manufactures have been advertising for years on television, in magazines and on the internet. They do anything and everything they can to bring us in a little closer so that in the end, we may feel some kind of connection with their product. The utilize music, high production values, top directors and even enlist the help of psychologists so that they may better tap into the human psyche. For them a car commercial isn’t just about selling you a car, but selling you a lifestyle, a thought process and more importantly confidence and self-esteem. For the most part we are used to seeing commercials for normal everyday automobiles like a Honda Accord, Nissan Maxima or a Ford Taurus, but what about the big guns of the automotive world, what about the super cars? Believe it or not automobile manufactures have spent millions on getting you to believe in their heritage and what they’ve done for the automotive society as a whole. I know it sounds hokey, but believe me when I tell you it’s the truth. Take a look at the following commercials and I think you’ll see what I mean.

What did you do this weekend?

Pie Run

Sometimes a weekend comes together in a fashion that just makes you smile. Here in New York I have a select group of buddies that I’ve been driving with for years. We have a set routine of waking up at the crack of dawn, meeting up at a rendezvous point, going for a nice spirited drive through the hills of upstate NY and CT and then hitting someplace that serves heart exploding meals for breakfast. As I hadn’t seen my friends in awhile I thought it may be a good idea to get together. The emails went out and we ended up setting a meeting place for 7am Saturday morning. There were only seven cars but together we made up a nice eclectic group of road going hardware.

So let’s say you’ve hit the MegaMillion lottery and just walked away with $20 million after taxes. Chances are good that the cash will need to last you the rest of your life, so living like a rock star won’t be a long term option. You’ve probably got family as well, so there will be mortgages to pay off, college tuition to fund and other expenses you didn’t see coming. Maybe you’re married, and your spouse had ideas about how to best spend and invest the cash. If you’re smart, you won’t blow more than 10% of your earnings on toys with wheels, wings or propellers.
